New York, Feb 16 (ANI): Rapper Jay Z, who is disappointed by Chris Browns alleged attack on Rihanna, has urged people to sympathize with the Umbrella hitmaker.
Jay-Z, who helped the Barbados-born star carve out a career in the music industry, is pushing fans to think of her like a close one, who suffered abuse.
“You have to have compassion for others, Just imagine it being your sister or mom and then think about how we should talk about that, the New York Daily News quoted him as telling People magazine.
Jay-Z is reportedly livid with Brown for allegedly attacking Rihanna after a pre-Grammy party, and leaving her with a split lip, a bloody nose and bite marks on her hands.
He urged all to extend their support to Rihanna, who is going through a tough time.
“I just think we should all support her. She’’s going through a tough time. You have to realize she’’s a young girl, as well. She’’s very young, Jay-Z said
When asked whether Jay-z has met the injured pop star, he refused to comment.
“I don”t want to go into it,” Jay-Z said. (ANI)
